SANTA CRUZ SHOOTING: Sgt. Loren Butch Baker, Det. Elizabeth Butler Killed by Jeremy Goulet

SANTA CRUZ SHOOTING:  Santa Cruz Sgt. Loren Butch Baker and Detective Elizabeth Butler were fatally shot by Jeremy Goulet after they were called to investigate a sexual assault in Santa Cruz Tuesday afternoon.

Suspect Jeremy Goulet, 35, was arrested on Friday after a co-worker at a Santa Cruz coffee shop alleged he went to her house and made inappropriate sexual advances. He was fired the next day. Investigators went to his home as part of a probe into the matter and an altercation ensued, which led to the officers being fired upon.

Jeremy Goulet was convicted in 2008 of peeping at a 22 year old woman who was showering in her condominium in Portland, Ore., and of carrying a concealed weapon, the Oregonian reports. He was placed on probation but after a dispute with his probation officer, he was incarcerated for two years.

Sgt. Loren Butch Baker was a 28-year veteran of the force, while Det. Elizabeth Butler was a 10-year veteran.  This is another horrific tragedy that didn’t have to happen. This comes on the heels of ex-LAPD officer Christopher Dorner’s shooting rampage that left four people dead, including two police officers.
